“We are very concerned regarding the whereabouts of Rowdy. He is a beloved member of the Road Warriors family and the Greenville community. It is our hope than anyone with information that could lead to Rowdy’s return would come forward. We have two important home games this weekend and we need Rowdy to be here for them,” said Road Warriors president and general manager Neil Smith.
Rowdy the Road Hog was last seen leaving the Roper Mountain Holiday Lights display around 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday night. He was returning to the BI-LO Center where he was going to begin preparing for Greenville’s two home games against the Florida Everblades this weekend. Rowdy was wearing his usual game day attire which is his Road Warriors jersey, leg armor, battle axe, shield, and helmet.
To aide in the search for Rowdy, the Road Warriors have enlisted the help of South Carolina Foothills Search and Rescue. S.C. Foothills Search and Rescue is an elite K-9 search and rescue team that is based out of Simpsonville, South Carolina. It is a non-profit corporation made up entirely of volunteers who provide the public with trained K-9 search and rescue teams.
Fans can lend support to the search for Rowdy by coming to the South Carolina Foothills Search and Rescue benefit at Saturday night’s game. As an all-volunteer organization and a 501c3 non-profit, S.C. Foothills Search and Rescue depends solely upon financial contributions for support. The search and rescue team is the Road Warriors’ best chance of finding Rowdy so they need your help to make sure he comes home.
